    As a native of The Hague, I frequently joke to people that I must be the only international lawyer who is constantly trying to escape from The Hague rather than come here.

    A Colleague´s Retirement: A Tribute to Hans Verstraate

    May 21, 2014

    Next month, Hans Verstraate will retire from his job as a Cataloguing-Librarian in the Peace Palace Library. For more than 14 years, Hans has catalogued thousands of books, journals, articles and documents. His keen eye for detail and love for books made him extraordinarily well suited for this work. Hans has been a warm and sympathetic colleague, whose output is legendary and he will be sorely missed. We wish him many happy years to come, devoting his time to gardening and singing in his beloved choirs.
